S&W M22A 10+1 22LR 7"
by Kurt P Date Added: Saturday 02 March, 2013
I took delivery of my new S&W 22A-1 7" barrel today, and off to the range I went. I was very disappointed that the gun did not seem to function at all at first! I disassembled it per the manual 3 or 4 times, but it would not load and fire. My heart sunk! But, now the good news. The magazines were not quite fully seated into the gun. I thought they were seated as a couple rounds would cycle through and then nothing. The magazine was popping out a very small amount, maybe an eighth of an inch. When you push in the magazine harder to get a solid positive lock in the gun all the problems went away. I shot about a half dozen different brands and bullet weights without any failure what so ever. About 150 rds. worth. All of a sudden I was a very happy camper! I broke one of the plastic floor plates on a magazine by pushing it in so hard, but knowing what the problem was, it was of little consequence knowing that S&W would probably make good on some spare floor plates.
I am very pleased with the gun. It really is a quality product with a nice price. Thanks Bud's!
